[ Edited ]
11 replies 530 views Edited Feb 25, 2013

a (now deleted) blog post appeared on the PSblog stating that Uncharted 3 Multiplayer will be free to play from this tuesday.

you can still read the comments on this page to see posts about it.

 

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/02/24/the-drop-week-of-february-25th-2013-new-releases/

 

the fact that it was removed could mean it wont happen tuesday after all, i dont know

 

EDIT: no details were given. Also, not not sure if free to play means free to play up to level 20 (for example) or completely free

 

EDIT 2: ah, i just saw this thread mentionned it when it was updated:

It has been delayed a couple of times until now, so I won't be surprised.

1.17 is going to be the Hammer Lab of Uncharted 3 if it gets pushed back any further, I'm just giving up on it if they say on Tuesday "The big news is almost here!!!111!!!!!".

If they do that I will spawn (< lol) spam every blog post from them telling them how much they suck. Also, did I read that right that only PS+ subcribers are getting the MP only download of UC3 for free and NOT non subscribers? No wonder access didn't mention UC3's MP only download as F2P because ND/ Sony STILL wants you to pay for it. No thanks, I'll be keeping my disk then and the userbase won't rise much with that clever move by them. -_-

At the very least, they have to give a "demo" version for free to everyone with some restrictions (no Legacy, no Gold boosters etc.)

Look what I have found Smiley Wink

^ FALSE advertising right there. It's a pic from the summer beta cutscene in chateau. (Except if the DO add back the ending ones at least...)

I no longer subscribe to plus & I want to be able to download the MP to my HDD, I certainly won't renew the service for a laggy game I already own.

So whether they offer a demo is not of my concern end of the day it's a given this move won't help the game since new users will quite before they even reach the level cap due to current state of architecture the game relies on.

I've been criticizing false advertising since the very beginning (FHC 4 map pack fiasco), but as someone else said, there are way too many brown nosers around here...

I wonder if Sony/ND are willing to give free codes to people who have issues with the disc version... makes sense, right? A few giveaways through Twitter and the forums could also help.

 

I also agree that we need many technical fixes... hopefully 1.17 should deliver, although I wouldn't hold my breath.

And:

  • "unique cinematic MP experience" still stated on my Explorer edition package even though the cutscenes got removed.
  • Red shirted Drake being shown at the back of the cover.
  • PS access being lazy and advertising UC3 MP only download with summer beta footage.
